Dad's Famous Chewy Pudding Chip Cookies

If you are like me and adore super chewy cookies, this recipe is for you! So moist, so delicious... you just have to indulge in two (or six)!




A few weeks back, I stopped by to visit my parents, and low and behold I found my dad in the kitchen. Baking. Cookies.

Who the heck is this guy?

Well, my dad is a rock star in the kitchen and loves cooking with mom. But this time, we was all by his lonesome making delicious pudding cookies to bring my grandpa for Father's Day - how cute is that?!

He found an incredible recipe that is easily interchangeable so you can swap different flavors out. He did butterscotch chip cookies (grandpa's fave), and I was blown away (and I'm picky, y'all!). So this past week when we had family staying with us, I knew it was the perfect time to test out the chocolate peanut butter chip variety.

They were gone within 36 hours. I made 2.5 dozen.
A hit!

Try them. So easy and you will put smiles on so many faces when they smell them baking!
